Francis, this was the 'thing' I was asking you about many moons ago if you can remember. I read a very early review of this add-on but they didn't have any photos of it, so when you told me about DF's M&Ds I asked whether they had this add-on thingy but think you mistook it for the minis. Wonder what it does to the sound?
By the way you got pm.
Waking up in the morning is the second hardest thing.
